Tintype Booth

Presented by Penumbra Foundation


The Penumbra Foundation is bringing its Tintype Booth back to Photoville this year! If you are looking for a portrait photograph that captures your unique, individual personality, step into our portable tintype photo booth and experience the magic of this 19th century photographic process! Our studio uses period authentic methods, materials and equipment.

Each portrait session will last about 15 minutes. The tintypes will be prepared, exposed and developed on site and you will be able to view the portrait immediately. The tintypes will then be varnished, and you will walk away with a one-of-a-kind 4” x 5” portrait for a special Photoville price of $55.00. The normal price for this size tintype in our studio is $95.
